Seth Thomas Antique Tambour 9 Mantel Mantle Cabinet Clock Model D-105 Movement:
SETH THOMAS TAMBOUR 9 – 1921
Today I have for offer is this beautiful Seth Thomas Tambour 9 produced in the year of 1921. The design of this clock is very similar to the larger Tambour 10 except this clock has a step up design at the 9 and 3. A molded edge outlines the clock along the front and sides. When you hear the timbre and decay on its bell metal gong counting the hours and half-hour, this clock will warm the room with its beauty and sound. The base has a nice carved quarter-round design and the overall look of the clock would go with any décor in any room or cabinet. The finish is 100% original that presents very faint fine lines (crazing) look to it. The Mahogany case has very few wo/man made character marks on it as the pictures will show. All the best features are on this model. This clock has a beautiful 4 inch silvered dial with indented Arabic numbers that can be seen from a distance and signature Seth Thomas fancy ships bell hour and minute hands and has a 2005 book value of up to $600.00.
This clock features a rebuilt 8-day half-hour strike D-105 movement that does not require a pendulum and strikes once on the half-hour and actual strikes of the hour on a bell metal gong. The movement precision and quality is similiar to the Seth Thomas 15 day 51 movement. This can be seen and heard on the video player that will be provided. Just click on the white play arrow in the middle of the video, adjust the volume and enjoy. A tiny scratch is near the center of the convex glass with no chips and the original finish machined clasp brass bezel opens and closes properly as it should. The back door closes with no snap and has the original material to let out the beautiful chime. An original single sided key comes with the clock. Every aspect of this clock is fully functional and will give years of enjoyment to you and many of your generations to come.
